The WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 live stream and TV matches on Sunday include a special free pre-show match ahead of the main pay-per-view. Before each month's pro wrestling PPV event, a "kick off" show is held featuring a panel of former and current WWE superstars along with at least one free match. For the live stream Elimination Chamber 2014 kick off show, that match featured The Brotherhood aka Cody Rhodes and Goldust taking on "Rybaxel," aka Ryback and Curtis Axel.
According to a ProWrestling.net article from Feb. 23, the special pre-show match lasted over eight minutes in total time. At one point Cody made a comeback on Curtis Axel and hit a standing moonsault, followed by his Alabama Slam. Ryback was able to yank Cody out of the ring to the floor, but he hit a Disaster Kick from the steel steps. Late in the match, Cody Rhodes was able to reverse Curtis Axel's finishing move attempt. Rhodes turned it into his own finisher, Cross Rhodes, then scored the winning pinfall.
Many fans were surprised to see the Rhodes brothers put onto the pre-show, when just recently they'd had a 104 day reign as the tag team champions, before losing their titles to the New Age Outlaws during the Royal Rumble Kickoff Show in January. There had been rumors a while back that Cody Rhodes and Goldust might end up in a singles feud, so it's possible that could begin to develop leading towards WrestleMania. Meanwhile, the tag team champions are scheduled to defend their titles during the actual Elimination Chamber PPV.
Sunday night's 2014 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view is being held at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., with Randy Orton defending his championship against five other superstars inside the chamber. This particular pay-per-view is the last one before WrestleMania 30, which is the biggest event each pro wrestling year for WWE. Tonight's pay-per-view has a start time of 8 p.m. EST and runs until about 11 p.m. EST, with follow up on the next episode of Raw on USA this Monday night at 8 p.m. EST.
